Ok, true story that just happened about an hour and a half ago.
My friend comes by and asks if I want to walk her dog with her. Having spent a while on ATS, I say sure. Some fresh air would be nice.
Her dog is elderly, and a real sweet dog, and usually full of pep despite his advanced age. It is pretty hot today, and we dont get very far into
the walk and her dog starts acting a little odd. He seems unsteady on his feet, and keeps trying to lay down. So we rest him, and then try to get him
to walk again so that we can get him home, as now it appears he is not doing very well.
I am becoming worried that he is being affected by the heat, and say that from now on, we will have to bring water. As we try to get him home, he
begins looking worse and walking unsteadily. I am now very concerned about him, and begin looking for mud puddles or hoses on people houses or
anything we can use to get him a drink. Just as I am about to suggest we go and knock on a door, we walk up on a bottle of water lying on the side of
the road in the grass. (This is a residential neighborhood with little traffic. ) The bottle is still cool and has moisture condensing on the
exterior. It has not been opened.
We cant believe our luck, and I open it, and give the dog a drink, which he gulps gratefully. So on we go, trying to get home, stopping every couple
of minutes to give him another drink until the bottle is empty. We are still a way from home, and he stops again, but this time we have no more
water. Until my friend points out just a couple feet ahead of us............yup. Another bottle of cool unopened water, this time lying on the
opposite side of the road under a tree. Thanks to this, we make it back to my house, and I drive them both home.
I know it could just be coincidence, but for us to find two bottles of water, just when we need them, on two different streets seem remarkably odd to
Has anyone else had any "too good to be true" coincidences lately?
